Decent hostel in a good location
Excellent location, friendly staff, nice tours
The staff was very friendly, the location was great and the tours they offer are excellent. Overall a very nice hostel. The rooms are nothing special, kind of what you would expect from a hostel. Internet wasn't working too well at the time, but they told us then they'd be working on it.

Review of Hi Vancouver Central
It is a good experience. The location is really good. Bus stop is just outside the lobby and is easy to go anywhere you want to go. It is just 5-minute walk distance to the Robson Street. The staff in front desk are very nice and is kind to help you. Overall, it is a good place for backpackers and young people.

Better off somewhere else
My free muffin was pretty good
The elevator was broken. There are A LOT of stairs. Plenty of time to take in the bum hotel ambiance of the stained and frayed carpet, holes in the walls, etc. The room was typical of a hostel, didn't stink, no bugs visible bunk uncomfortable but again pretty standard. The location is sketchy but convenient. I was not afraid, just yucked out. Overall I say it's over priced, even for pricey Vancouver. Pay an extra 2 dollars and stay somewhere better. The other HI a few blocks away looked nicer but again look out for hidden fees if not a HI member.

Never better
Location, price, friendly staff
stayed here end of June 2014, some available beds and rooms. Stayed here end of June 2015. no empty beds and rooms. It seems that this HI Vancouver Central is getting popular and famous. Whenver I go to Vancouver, I always stay here. HI-Vancouver Central never let me down. For sure, next time, Booking is necessary.

Nice place for solo traveller
Convenient location, very good receptionist especially on introducing the place to visit and the route plan, clean bed and room
The wifi is not good enough in Room404 as maybe it is too remote and the room is in the corner. So I wil have to go to the lobby or the pantry for wifi. The rest is okey.
